Give Local York logo -- We are proud to participate in this day of giving

York County’s annual day of giving is an opportunity to unite our community around causes in which we truly believe and help the nonprofit organizations that are important to us. Thank you to all who helped us raise more than $4,000 in 2021 by donating through Give Local York. We look forward to participating again in 2022 and the return of in-person events.

Donate here on May 6, 2022.

Donations are critical to our organization as we incurred losses due to our 2020 and 2021 cancellations. In 2020, items such as printing, advertising, promotional items, storage locker rental, deposits, etc. were all paid well in advance. There was no ticket income, vendor fees, or food and beverage sales to cover those costs.  We did offer virtual content on Facebook on our 2020 and 2021 festival dates and look forward to the return of in-person events in 2022. We hope you will join us!

If you have any questions or would like more information about the Penn-Mar Irish Festival, please let us know. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this post and for your support and generosity. Please stay safe!
